Box Score Bits: Granderson homers twice

New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson homered twice and stole a base Sunday, which is what fantasy owners thought they'd get all season. Instead, Granderson has yet to reach double digits in either category, and the home runs were Granderson's first in a month. You might want to sell high after Sunday's performance rather than expect more.
Philadelphia Phillies left-hander J.A. Happ made his first major league start since mid-April on Sunday, allowing three runs in five innings. Happ issued four walks, which has been his problem lately in the minors as well. Owned in 42.3 percent of ESPN.com leagues, he's unlikely to thrive as he did in his rookie season unless he controls the walks.
